    good one, but I'm happy with my M30W

    I'd say you need one high power incan, a good mid sized led light (18650/2xcr123s), a single cell EDC and a keychain light.

    In those categories the following would be good:

    1. Surefire M6 (cheap: Ultrafire W500 with WA1111)
    2. Surefire U2, C2, LX2
    3. HDS/RA (the Arc6 on the way should be good as well)
    4. Ti preon I, Arc AAA etc.

    I assume you were referring to the Ra Clicky. Please correct me if I assumed wrong.

    Great light, especially running off AA's they can be found almost anywhere or robbed from other devices in an emergency.

    Maratac AAA (any version) I think these are massively underrated lights. The ultra low low can run for 40 odd hours off a single aaa.

    Lummi Raw. Future classic.

    Fenix E01, can't believe no one has mentioned these yet!!! Legendary rite of passage flashlight, you ain't a flashaholic till you've got one of thes all beaten up on your keychain!! (And another one which you keep good, or is that just me? )

    Yep clickie or HDS EDC with updated led (Seoul, xp-e/xp-g or K2 TFFC) I like the HDS since it is a bit smaller and uses a better clip

    a single light that can be used as overhead light, shirt light, desk lamp, headlamp, lanyard light hand-free; and it can be used as a flashlight too.

    Since I went hand-free about a year ago, I haven't looked back.

    I guess to an extent the answer to the OP question really depends on how deep your pockets are.

    My answers:

    HDS Ra Clicky - I prefer the High CRI, but I guess whichever LED bin floats your boat. It's a great light, perfect size/weight/balance, awesome UI.

    Surefire M6 - a classic with so many options from 250 - 2000+ lumens.

    SF C2 / 18650 bore / SST-50 warm drop-in - yes a little bit custom but a current build and readily available.

    For me two come to mind. The LiteFlux LF2XT, of course, and one that helped usher in the LED revolution, the CMG Infinity.

    SureFire 6P (acceptable substitutes include SF C2, Z2, and, to a slightly lesser extent, G2)

    While it's an outstanding light in its stock form, there exists a large and growing number of options to modify the light to meet the needs and/or wants of most users.

    My "must haves" are all torches I currently own and I hanker for no others.

    My Led Lenser P7. Totally utterly dependable and reliable. Never even flickered. Bright and able to throw very well. The one torch I'd pack if I knew my life was going to depend on it.

    My Eagletac p20c2 mkII. So bright and with such well spaced levels. Great for opening up larger areas but can still see a fair way.

    Jetbeam Jet-i V3. AA, 14500 and allows programming of levels and order. Great throw for the little package but still effective close up. Perfect single cell pocket torch.

    ITP A3 EOS torch for my keybunch. Just for emergencies.

    No others. That's all I really need.
